Tropical Depression Nicole delays NASA, SpaceX launch

Tropical Depression Nicole put a damper on plans for NASA and SpaceX to launch its 26th commercial resupply services mission

to the International Space Station, forcing it to push the date back to Nov. 21.

SpaceX, which is led by billionaire and Elon Musk, originally aimed to launch its Dragon cargo spacecraft on top of a Falcon 9 rocket from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Nov. 18

but the arrival of now Tropical Depression Nicole, has the space agencies looking at a date no earlier than Nov 21.

Nicole made landfall just south of Vero Beach, Florida with sustained winds of 75 mph, 

making it a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Nicol has been blamed for the deaths of at least two people, according to Fox Weather, who were electrocuted when they encountered a downed power line in Orlando.
